Beautiful Sunday # 348 - Last for January

It was one of those weeks I wanted to end. I was looking forward to stay home and forget concerns from my everyday environment. I had too much in a week. I was thankful to the two friends who lent their ears. I appreciate my cousins, who unexpectedly treated me for lunch and dinner. It was a great way to temporarily forget some emotional burden. I hope everything will become better next week. But from the looks of everything, all else remain uncertain. 

Whenever something turns out bad, I try my best not to spread the negativity. I voluntarily help someone. I render a good deed to a random person. It may not necessarily address my struggle, but being able to help feels equally rewarding. It also makes me realize, it's not hard to be on the shoes of a good person. It's always better to help, than make other people feel miserable.

So much about my sentiments, here are some photos from last week.

Beautiful Sunday # 347 - Keep Calm and Endure Everything


A few weeks ago, my social media accounts were flooded with video clips of the kid, who bullied several of his classmates. It happened in a known Catholic institution serving the upper class market. The incident was proof that inflicting harm and experiencing oppression chooses no place. Even the finest places and situations can bring devastating to traumatic experiences to anyone.

Beautiful Sunday # 346 - Back to default mode


The past week was my first week back at work. After a three-week holiday break, I'm back to my default mode. Morning classes, office work, traffic, repeat for the entire work week. I thought everything was working well, not until I was plagued with a bad case of backache. It started in the middle of the week and up until typing this post, the pain is testing me to the fullest. Bending, sideways movement and most of all, getting up from bed feel so painful. I'm not sure if the cold from the office's aircon, heavy bags or bad posture from prolonged laptop usage caused everything. My body, which has been rested for three weeks, could have been overwhelmed with my first week at work.

Kate Spade, Shop Spring and Shipping Cart (the third time around!) : A Shopping and Shipping Review



While we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the Philippines, I look forward to this holiday because of the Black Friday Sale. :p Years ago, I only hear Black Friday Sale from friends and relatives residing in US. When I started to learn about online shopping and cargo forwarding services, my life changed. ;) I get to experience a little something from this most awaited sale.

Beautiful Sunday # 345 - First of January



Time flew fast, it has been a great holiday break. We had our last day at work, I toured friends in my hometown, New Year's eve came and the last few days were spent with the family and accomplishing some freelance work. I'm back to work this week and sure enough, I will struggle adjusting with my 7 am classes. If there's anything to love about early morning classes, it's the less crowded trains and cold morning breeze.

Gui Gui : Another Unlimited Korean Grill


In the previous years, my birthday usually falls on a working day. My default plan was either, take a leave or report for work and treat my friends for dinner. Last month, my birthday landed on a weekend. I didn't have plans. All I felt then, I didn't want to spend another birthday sleeping or cleaning up my room. A few days before that weekend, I decided I wanted to have Samgyeopsal (Korean Grill) with my two cousins. At first, I thought of having a DIY Korean grill. I felt reluctant because it might emerge expensive. My cousin also told me, we didn't have the sauce and side dishes to create an authentic Samgyeopsal experience. In the end, my cousin brought me to a hidden and quiet Korean grill in my hometown.
